Hi There,

I'm a complete noob to fedora, but I love the distro, the only problem I'm having is I cant load and of my graphics drivers, my laptop has Intel HD 4600 graphics as well as an Nvidia 950M GPU,

I've installed Fedora 22 MATE

This is the laptop:

I've used "Intel Graphics Installer for Linux" for the Intel Card:

https://01.org/linuxgraphics/blogs/vi...

And This tutorial for the Nvidia Card:

http://linuxconfig.org/nvidia-geforce...

If I install both MATE wont work, And if I install either of them by themselves the it just doesn't work.

If I run "lspci -k | grep -i vga" I get this:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)

However if i just run lspci -k | grep -i 3d I get this:

01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 950M] (rev a2)

So I know the system sees the hardware but I can seem to get the right drivers to get the system to work properly...

I've tried all the tutorials I can find please can someone help me, I really dont want to go back to Ubuntu or Windows over a stupid driver problem...

Thanks in advance :)

The guide you followed tells you how to install the drivers as packaged by nVidia, and that's the hardest route there is because you have to do the entire thing all over every time there's a kernel update. My advice is to uninstall those drivers completely, and follow these instructions instead. Not only will the drivers get updated on their own when you install a new kernel, you'll also end up with the rpmfusion repositories installed, giving you access to a number of packages that aren't in the regular Fedora repos for various reasons.
